Have you ever wondered how Tenderstem® was created? The versatile brassica originated in Japan where it was bred by seed specialists at a company called Sakata, about 20 years ago. Since then Tenderstem® has become a much-loved vegetable thanks to its unique combination of flavour and texture and its versatility. Members of the team from Sakata recently travelled from Japan to the UK. To mark their visit, we invited renowned food journalists, food stylists and chefs to celebrate Tenderstem®’s Japanese roots at the prestigious SW3 Dinings, Knightsbridge, with an opportunity to learn more about the origins of our favourite vegetable and to enjoy the ultimate Tenderstem® 7-course dining experience.
